A stormy early morning commute is expected for Connecticut residents Monday with showers and gusty winds.
Sunday night and Monday morning promise to be a "stormy time," according to WFSB Meteorologist Mike Cameron.
The storm that is expected to hit Connecticut was the one that caused heavy damage in the Ohio River Valley and southern Great Lakes.
The National Weather Service has placed Connecticut in a slight risk of severe weather zone.
"By the time these storms get to Connecticut, it will be in the wee hours of Monday morning and loss of heating will weaken these storms considerably. Their structures will also have changed, transforming from tornadic supercells to 'line segments' that are straight-line wind generators, not tornado-makers," Cameron said.
Connecticut residents should expect "heavy downpours" and wind gusts possible more than 60 mph. The majority of the rain is expected to fall in western Connecticut at about 2 a.m., according to current predictions.
"The front should take no more than eight to 10 hours to cross the state from start to finish, promising a wet commute, but clearing skies once you've settled into the office and have the coffee at your desk," Cameron said.
